After Andrew Stuck pioneered Sound Walk Sunday in 2017, he teamed up, at the end of 2018, with Geert Vermeire, the convenor of Made of Walking, writer, curator and a locative multi-media expert with a focus on the environment, travelling and living in between Europe and Brazil, and with Babak Fakhamzadeh, an award winning locative app developer, based in Sao Paulo in Brazil. We reprised Sound Walk Sunday in 2019 as a global festival, in a joint organisational structure of the Museum of Walking and Made of Walking, with key institutional partners in Brazil, Australia, Greece, Spain, Germany and Poland.

Stella Wisdom, Digital Curator at the British Library hosted, in the run up to this event, our ‘Explore with Sound Walks’ symposium, a half day event in June 2019, which saw presentations from experts from Poland, Greece, Spain, Brazil and the UK. By this time, we realised that Sound Walk Sunday was evolving into something else, Sound Walk September, becoming not only a showcase for innovation, but also a valued community-building resource, bringing practitioners together, many of whom are remotely working creatives who had previously perhaps felt isolated.

The results:

  • 80+ live events.
  • 40+ countries.
  • 50+ walking pieces made in 2019 eligible for the Sound Walk September Award 2019.
  • 2 joint winners, 4 honourable mentions.
